Why pay premium for Montepulciano Abruzzo when the LCBO has lots of it in the $8 range? These low priced wines tend to “˜easydrinking/commercial’ drinks ““ stuff for people that don’t really like wine. This guy however, has the traditional ““ bone dry, gutsy, rustic ““ quality that makes Italy unique. One sip of this and you’re over there ““ at a village trattoria, with the magical sounds of people doing food and wine. With gusto. Forget smooth.
